    sync-interval (Slave)


    sync-interval interval

    Hierarchy Level

    [edit protocols ptp slave]


    Specify the requested log mean interval at which synchronization messages are sent from the master to the slave. The requested synchronization interval is configured on the slave. The specified value is the log2 value of the requested synchronous packet rate. Because the accepted value varies from –6 to –3, the specified packet rate is from 2^6 (2 raised to the power of 6) to 2^3 or from 64 packets per second to 8 packets per second.

    Note: The configuration of the sync-interval statement on the slave is effective only when the unicast-negotiation statement is also configured at the [edit protocols ptp] hierarchy level.
